Eyewitness Allegedly Live-Tweeted Michael Brown Shooting: ‘I JUST SAW SOMEONE DIE’ (GRAPHIC)

A Twitter user apparently live-tweeted the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Though the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported on the tweets immediately following, the apparent first-hand account — which included photos of the gruesome aftermath — was spreading across national news websites on Friday.

Brown was fatally shot by a cop following what police described as a physical altercation. Brown allegedly robbed a store prior to his death, however, the officer was reportedly unaware that he was a suspect at the time of the shooting.

We have blurred the graphic photo of Brown’s body as well as some strong language:

Though the photos posted by the Twitter user support the claim that he is a legitimate eyewitness to the shooting, the tweets are still impossible to verify with 100 percent certainty.
